Madam, I Believe Your Gown Is Scowling At Me

You know, when I think Angry Birds, I think one thing: fashion. Don't you?



Well, then...


Anyhoo, Peter Vesterbacka, the CMO of Rovio, the company created that ridiculously addictive game (and I will get past Level 10! Someday!), has developed a bit of a reputation for constantly wearing an Angry Birds hoodie. It is to him as flannel is to Lucas. You just don't see the guy without it. Unfortunately, it's not exactly black-tie, so when he and his wife, Teija, were invited to an independence celebration at the Finnish Presidential Palace, he needed to come up with a more formal alternative.

Let me just say here that Peter has an awesome wife.

When the pair arrived at the Palace, Teija stepped out in an elegant red satin gown, complete with one-shouldered styling, gorgeous--and flattering--draping, and an artful arrangement of white, black, and orange geometric shapes across the undraped portion of the bodice; shapes which formed an angry bird.

Now, some critics have cried foul (sorry) on this particular choice of gown for such a formal occasion, but I disagree. The couple were invited because of Angry Birds popularity in Finland. Add that to Peter's penchant for sporting the characters, and I argue the gown was highly appropriate. Okay, maybe not for anyone else, but certainly for Teija Vesterbacka, and I think she looked lovely.
